Course description

Essential Theory and Technique

The Essential Theory and Technique for Guitar course designed for two main types of people; the beginner guitar player who has no guitar or musical experience and those who can play guitar a little bit but are wanting to understand the music theory behind what they are playing and to improve on their technique.

Music Is A Language

Learning music is like learning a language. Music notes are like letters of the alphabet. When you learn how to combine them, you can create chords, which are like words, and with words you can create sentences and tell stories.

There are some great guitar players who don’t necessarily know all of the theory behind what they are playing, but using the above analogy of music as a language, imagine the potential that is being missed out on by not fully understanding what you are playing. If you were taking a trip to France, you could buy a translation book that could tell you how to say certain phrases in French, such as “Where is the bathroom?” or “What time is it?”, but imagine how much more you could communicate if you were able to construct your own sentences and phrases in French? You could say whatever you wanted without limits. Music is similar; by understanding the “why”, and practicing the “how” you reduce the limitations and open up a world of opportunity to express yourself with your instrument.

The course includes a full color PDF E-Book which is over 50 pages and provides further explanation of the material in the videos as well as guitar neck diagrams for your reference.

This course is 2 hours and 20 minutes long and should provide you with weeks worth of material to work on.

Hi, I’m Troy, the founder of Studio33 and Lead Instructor here on the site. I love music and especially guitar, but what I love even more is teaching others to play and watching them succeed in their music journey.

I have played guitar for 27 years and I have been teaching guitar for almost as long. From private lessons to video lessons, I have had the pleasure of teaching thousands of people of various age and skill levels from all over the world.

After teaching so many people, I have developed a curriculum that has evolved and been refined over the years into what I believe to be the best step by step approach to learning guitar. My philosophy about learning guitar is that knowledge goes hand in hand with technique. If you want to simply play a few chords, you can easily find someone to show you where to place your fingers on the guitar neck. But if you really want to succeed as a musician, it’s important for you to understand what it is you are playing. Studio33Guitar lessons teach just that; the “why” along with the “how”.

Don’t be frightened by the term “music theory”, our lessons are laid out in a very organized, and structured, yet simple way that will teach you in a true step by step approach.


I am also available to help you with any questions that may arise along the way. If I can help at any time, simply email us at info@studio33guitarlessons.com and I will personally respond to your question. It’s what I love to do!
